A second man was arrested Feb. 19 in connection with the pellet gun shooting of a cat in Ontario, Canada, Sarnia city police announced.

The 20-year-old Sarnia man was apprehended in the city and will be charged with two counts of animal cruelty, police said. One count is for willfully injuring an animal, which carries a maximum sentence of five years behind bars, and the other is for willfully causing unnecessary suffering, which has a penalty of up to two years.

The announcement came six days after a 19-year-old Sarnia man was arrested Feb. 13 in connection with the shooting, which left Joe, a male cat, with 17 pellets in his head.

The cat was found in early February. Surgeons removed the cat’s badly damaged left eye and all but one of the pellets, and he is on the mend, according to the Sarnia & District Humane Society, which is overseeing his care.

Sarnia is an industrial city in southwestern Ontario and is located across the St. Clair River from Port Huron, Mich.
